CLax All-Star Game goes Saturday in Wilmot


The Canadian Lacrosse League will hold its first All-Star Game this Saturday at 2pm at the Wilmot Recreation Complex. CLax is using the old NHL format where the league champions, in this case the Niagara Lock Monsters, face off against an all-star team comprising players from the other four teams in the league. As might be expected, the all-star squad is weighted heavily towards the offensive end of the floor. League scoring champion Chris Attwood, who must be a strong candidate for both offensive and transition player of the year, highlights the team that will take on the champion Lock Monsters.

The Barrie Blizzard haven’t had much success in their brief Canadian Lacrosse League tenure. They’re hoping Saturday marked the start of a change for the better. The Blizzard, who went 3-11 in their inaugural CLax season in 2013, were winless in four starts heading into yesterday’s match with the Southwest Cyclops but they’ve made plenty of personnel changes in the last couple of weeks. All of the additions appear to be helping the team, but none have had the immediate impact that the trade for Travis Gibbons had yesterday.

Gibbons, who arrived from the Niagara Lock Monsters along with AJ Masson for Scott Gamble and a first-round draft pick just a few days ago, had a monster first game to help the Blizzard down the Cyclops 13-12, including scoring the winning goal just 12 seconds into overtime. The overtime marker gave Gibbons a hat trick for the game to go along with 6 assists. He also played a strong defensive game and was a hard-working leader with his new team. READ MORE »
